Thoughts on The Curse of Dracula
Thoughts – The Curse of Dracula follows a scam tourist plan that will see things go in a dark twisted direction, diving into the idea of vampires. The film does add in an extra level of comedy, playing into the wacky people that would dive into the idea of heading to a vampire location in hopes of finding in. when everything starts to unfold, it does become difficult to keep up with who is or isn’t an important character. We do get a lot of blood and gore, which will keep the gore fans happy. The single location of the mansion does offer up many different rooms, with different secrets to reveal.
Final Thoughts – The Curse of Dracula is a standard spin on the vampire, that is filled with gore, but lacks the story impact.
